The DeAngelo Williams Foundation (DWF) is the official charity founded by DeAngelo Williams, former running back of the Carolina Panthers and the Pittsburgh Steelers. DeAngelo started the DWF in 2006 in honor of his mother and four aunts that all passed away from breast cancer.
The foundation’s main focus is to spread breast cancer awareness in hopes to one day eradicate this disease.
In December 2014, DeAngelo started “53 Strong for Sandra” in Charlotte, NC, an initiative in which the DWF funds 53 mammography screenings for women who are uninsured or under-insured. In addition to the screening events, the foundation also covers the cost of follow up appointments and treatments when needed and when cancer is discovered. The number of mammograms provided at each event is a tribute to DeAngelo’s mother, Sandra, who was 53 years old when she passed away. By 2017 the foundation expanded the outreach of “53 Strong for Sandra” by funding mammography screenings for women in Pittsburgh, PA and Memphis, TN while continuing service in Charlotte, NC each year. DeAngelo is currently looking to expand into South Carolina, Arkansas, and California soon and then also to other states with the ultimate goal of reaching all 50.
Your registration in the 53 Strong DeAthlon and any additional donations will provide support to fund more mammograms locally in Charlotte but will also allow us to expand into Union County by providing our services in Waxhaw!
